My hubby was abroad traveling on business for a couple of months and returned home at the end of last year. He brought home with him a pretty bad cold, runny nose, sneezing, stuffy head…. you know, the works. He was basically helpless for about five days. That would have been fine, but he passed that awful cold right on to me right after he got better. I had the same symptoms, maybe a little worse, and for the same amount of time. My mother bear instincts kicked into high gear as I was sick. I didn’t want our son to follow the pattern and get ill after me.
I went straight to the source and started working on his immune system. I decided to make him a small batch of agua fresa which is loaded with Vitamin C! It worked and our son didn’t catch our nasty cold, and he loved his agua de fresa!
Ingredients Agua De Fresa:
- 1 1/2 – cups strawberries (stem cut off)
- 1 – cup water
- 1/2 – tablespoon sugar
- Place all ingredients in a blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Serve in a cup and drink immediately.
- Enjoy and do your best to keep a nasty cold away.
